Publisher's Summary

It's not easy being the only human at the Community of Species Government - and especially not when you're the rescue case. Two years ago, I was planning to go to college, have a wild time, then settle into a normal life. Instead, I was kidnapped, spent months being a test subject, was in hiding for nearly a year, and then found out that my whole existence is a science experiment conducted by the bad guys. It's definitely time to reassess.

My rescuers at CSG have been awesome...mostly. They gave me a job, a home, and a support network. But the whole demons, vampires, shifters thing is not easy to get used to. Especially when one particular vampire makes me want to take up stake sharpening for a hobby.

The thing is, teenage mentality or not, Andrew is a fierce protector. With the bad guys still on the loose, I need someone like that on my side. Plus, did I mention that he's not hard to look at?

As we race to find my former captor before he can find me, life takes another twist and upends my world all over again. This time, though, I'm ready - after all, I've got an 800-year-old vampire at my back. What could possibly go wrong?

Full of sass

The dialogue full of sass is a total highlight in this book. The storyline continues and it is intriguing and highly engaging. The characters are very well defined and make up a fantastic cast that are never dull. Joel Leslie's narration adds another layer of enjoyment and I found myself unable to press pause and it was over far too soon!

Excellent book

I totally recommend this book and series. It's funny as F. The main character is snarky and hysterical. Joel Leslie does an excellent job narrating as per usual. I really enjoyed this book and recommend this book. There are more in the series and recommend that you buy all the series. You won't be disappointed.

Patchy and not as fun as the first book

In Demons Do It Better, Noah was rescued from a malevolent warlock / mad scientist. Here he settles into life at the Community of Species Government offices where he falls for ancient vampire, Andrew. DDIB was hilariously good, this book not so much. There’s lot of explaining and world building but not a lot happens for the first half of the book and Noah seemed pretty similar to Sam in DDIB. I didn’t really ‘feel’ the romance between Noah and Andrew, it’s overshadowed by the world building and they went from enemies to lovers very suddenly. There’s some nice action in the second half of the book and I liked Noah’s magical progress, but the story ends abruptly, it’s almost a cliffhanger. Audio narrator, Joel Leslie sparkles, switching accents on a dime. He seems to have chosen different accents for different species, with French (?) accents for the vampires.

HFN

I don’t like cliffhanger books, but I just figured out I don’t like “happy for now” either.
Cool and twisted story, this really is a series you have to have all. And in order …
The book was good and somewhat interesting, though it felt like it got wrapped up a little too abruptly.
Great narrator, enjoyable performance.

Just Buy This Book!

Look, I am not even into the fantasy/sci-fi genre, but this book is freaking awesome! Hilariously laugh out loud funny, super sexy, and perfectly narrated. Can’t wait for more of this series!

Worth the credit

Really enjoyed the storyline and of course the excellent narration from Joel takes it to another level. Definitely worth the credit, can highly recommend and I am usually not a fan of paranormal.

I love this series

I love visiting this world and all its people. It's so intriguing and well written, it will keep you on the edge of your seat. A modern day human and an 800 year old vampire - hilarity and drama ensues. AND Joel Leslie is a master of accents and innuendo. He grabs the story and takes it into the atmosphere. He is a joy to listen to.

Not to be missed!!!

I’m in love with Louisa Masters and Joel Leslie! I loved the story and definitely laughed out loud many times at Andrews antics! Such a fun story. The series is not to be missed!! Joel Leslie is always a great choice for narration! His use of accents is amazing and I have gone in to Audible just searching for books narrated by him! Thanks you 2 for another fun listen!!

- 4 to 4.5 stars -

*spoilers*

I liked this book.

* I will update this at a later date as I need a bit of time to think*

*Narration*
Joel Leslie's narration was fantastic as always. it definitely heightened my enjoyment of this book. Despite having quite a few characters to narrate, he was able to give all of them pretty distinct voices. I also really enjoyed how he narrated Andrew.

I really enjoyed this book!

Noah is so cool. This book is awesome! Andrew is hilarious. It doesn't feel finished though, the ending felt abrupt to me. I do love how this book ends with Noah and Andrew's relationship. That gave me heart eyes.

No one beats Joel Leslie

Well this is a tough one. Usually a book rating is easy for me to place and I rarely need to quantify it with a .5 but for the first time in forever I'm being forced to do so.
Story -3.5
Performance- 5

I'll go with performance first because it really can't be any simpler. Joel Leslie is a book narrating God! The energy and emotions he puts into his performances is just perfect and his delivery of snarky or funny lines is, as always, spot on. Just... maybe don't listen to a sex scene when there's a possibility of others hearing because yeah, that enthusiasm. *cough* Don't ask me why I bring it up. 😳😂


Unfortunately on the story side of things I gotta say I'm not quite as impressed. Don't get me wrong, it's a great story and it had me laughing in places until my stomach hurt. But I've got to be a little harsher than normal because of 2 particular points.

1) I agree with a couple others here who commented that the ending just feels rushed. It really just feels like the author maybe saw the length and said "Oh shoot I gotta stop writing!" or something. I've nothing against HFN's but this one left me feeling completely unsatisfied. Even though we all know it will be an HEA ultimately.

2) My second point is that for the first half of the book Noah just drives me nuts with all his bitching and moaning about the community members around him. I get it, he's been traumatized, barely escaped with his life, everything he knew about himself turned out to be a lie and there's a ton of anger and hurt to work through. But the fact that he has to keep reminding himself not to lash out at people because they did actually save him and truly want him safe and happy just rubs me the wrong way. At least he gets himself under control after a bit.

So in the end, while I enjoyed the story i think it's Joel's performance that saved it for me in the long run. Not sure how I'd have responded if I'd just read the book.

Series story will draw you in.

I really enjoy reading the books, but I get more enjoyment out of listening to the audio books. which is the only time I can say that because I'm an avid reader and get a little bored with audiobooks because they move so much slower than I read. but I really enjoy listening to these I get hours of entertainment.

Good read, but…

Demons Do it Better was a an amazing book and in comparison, this one was a bit of a let down. This doesn’t mean it was a bad book. It was a really good book and I can’t wait to read the next one. Andrew was hilarious and Noah is a great match for him. Like Sam, Noah is a take no crap kind of guy. Next book please!

Awesome

The voices Joel came up with the characters in The first book were so on point for these characters. His talent shows through in how he’s able to continually maintain Andrews accent. A brilliant book brilliantly narrated.

Brilliant!!


Louisa Masters is brilliant at this genre. The storyline is fluid from Demons Do It Better as well as the characters.

I absolutely loved it as much as the first - Andrew and Noah are such a great fit, especially the snark and humour.

Even ‘The World Of Wangs’ got another mention - so hysterically funny 😆

Joel Leslie is superb as usual 😁

Really can’t wait to hear what happens next!!

Definitely worth 5🌟’s
